If you think your montage is already perfect, you don't need to do this step. But adding a transition will make your video montage look more dynamic. To add transitions, click on the transition icon and then drag and drop a transition in between two clips, you can add diifferent transitions in the whole montage. To edit the transition, go to the top right panel to change the duration and mode.

If you want to get a cinematic look in your transition, here's a tip. Put the first clip one track above the following clip and overlap it for 3 to 5 seconds. Then apply the fade out effect to the first clip and the fade in effect to the next clip. Click on the fade out effect and drag it to the left to make it last longer, now you've created a cross-fade transition which looks absolutely like what you see in the movie.
